Forum: GratefulDead Subject: the proper introduction to the Dead???

Here's a question sure to inspire debate!! If you wanted to introduce a *civilian* into the wonderful, joyous world of the Dead and of course that most grateful and gracious world of the DeadHeads, what show (preferably one that could be D/Led) would you choose and why??

Thanks in advance for your time

PEACE:Skippy

Honestly I would say Cornell... Most people are gonna be turned off by the sound quality if you play them an AUD. I think the best best would be something from the 70's. Hearing Cornell is what converted me.

I am biased so I'll say 5/6/81 - there is a great AUD on the Archive and the show pretty much smokes start to finish. I was listening to the 2nd set on the way to work this AM and it is pretty fabulous, and because it is an AUD it captures the real Nassau Col sound.

From the first tune - this is classic Dead: http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-04-01.glassberg.barbella.4742.sbeok.shnf
(and if they make it past the first tune, they'll be glad they did).
